WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Japanese auto parts maker Takata Corp 7312.T has been considering a possible bankruptcy filing for its U.S. unit but no filing is expected soon, a source briefed on the matter said.

Takata, at the center of the biggest global automotive recall in history for its potentially deadly air bag inflators, has retained investment bank Lazard Ltd (LAZ.N) as an adviser to choose a sponsor for its turnaround.
